It's back to school time! And it's our family's 1st time really heading to school! My oldest was in preschool last year but this year started Kindergarten, and she was extra excited, can you tell?


(That little skirt was a fun on-the-road, sewing-in-the-car project from our vacation!)

To celebrate this fun season, Gotta Pixel is having a store wide 40% off sale! Starting at midnight ET (right now!) through the end of the day (ET) August 24th. Shop and stock up!

I finally can announce the winners of my biggest blog contest ever! I am currently on vacation with my family and yesterday couldn't get a internet connection to collect those final few entries, so I held off on the drawing. But now, thanks to hotel wifi, the wait is over!!!

Drum roll.......

The winner of a $50 shopping spree to my Gotta Pixel store is Rachel Carlyon! Rachel, I'll email you shortly with the details!

I was so overwhelmed with the number of participants, I just had to pick a few more winners! I repeated the random number generator and pulled names from my spreadsheet of entries and chose 5 more winners to receive a $10 coupon to my Gotta Pixel store!

Robyn,
Heidi (@digiscrapfinder),
Fran B,
Maria (@mommars) and
Kat!

I'll be emailing all the winners shortly!

In related and very exciting news, thanks to all your votes, I won the Fabric On Demand Save Our Chairs contest!!! They'll be printing up my green leafy pattern to reupholster a set of dining room chairs. I can't wait to see the final result! Plus they are sending me a very generous gift card!

Thank you all so much for your votes! Be sure and pick up the brand new August desktop calendar that sweet Melinda made and posted for you! Once I get back home I'll wrap up my new Count On Me kit and I'll make a little something extra to share with you right here, so stay tuned!
Looking for the contest winners for Sarah's big contest?? (It just ended the other day!)



I just read her Twitter update that she's hoping to make the announcement tonight! How exciting!

I hope she can share more exciting news related to that above contest! (Me grinning as I type this ... how exciting!!!)

Have you picked up your desktop calendar yet? See my previous post if you don't know what I'm talking about! :)

Hi! It's Melinda stopping in especially to show you and link you up to your new August desktop! You knew you were missing something, didn't you?! :) This month's desktop is a departure from the "Back to School" desktops you are bound to find on many other blogs and sites. Nearly every piece is from Sarah's soon-to-be released kit, Count on Me! I hope that you think it is as pretty as I do!



I've made 3 different PNG desktops for you, in the standard sizes. You can access them at my personal box.net site at the following links depending on the size of your monitor:

1024x768
1280x1024
1600x1200

I do not know how to add a TOU to those files, so font credits are as follows...

Here is what mine looks like after I've personalized it.


If you download it, I hope you will leave me a comment!

Thanks, and have a great Sunday!
